Wednesday’s lineups: Tigers at Twins

Kevin Correia has pretty much been the same pitcher for the last four years, with a record around .500, 9-10 hits per nine innings and a low strikeout rate. But one thing he has in his favor going into his first start as a Twin is his success against Prince Fielder: 5-for-25 with a double, a home run and six RBIs. He went 1-for-6 against him last year. On the flip side, not surprisingly, is Miguel Cabrera.

You can follow the game on MLB.com Gameday, watch it on FSN Detroit or on MLB.TV, or listen on 97.1 FM in Detroit or MLB.com Gameday Audio.

need to take another one this afternoon, looks like the weather is a bit warmer. The boys looked miserable on Monday due to the cold but still fought for a win. Go Tigers!

Do the Twins think Correia could be a Tiger killer like Pavano?? We better rough him up and ruin that theory!! Go Tigers!!
